FC Dallas vs Real Salt Lake: Match Predictions

Our staff believes FCD can open up the season on a good note.

MLS: Real Salt Lake at FC Dallas Tim Heitman-USA TODAY Sports

The regular season begins tonight for FC Dallas as they host Real Salt Lake in the first game of the season.

Dallas have won six of their last nine games against Real Salt Lake, including two blowout victories last season by scores of 3-0 and 6-2. Dallas have been especially dominant vs. RSL at home, going 13-1-2 against them.

As usual we polled our staff for game predictions and the group feels confident the team can get a win tonight but a few of us see some sloppy play still being a factor to watch out for.
